We had a good three day stay here in January. The motel is extremely well located, very clean and comfortable. The staff are very welcoming. My youngest teen was sick while we were there and the owner was very concerned. The laundry facilities are terrific and well priced.

Thanks for your review, we do have continental breakfast available for $12 per person, but the reason I have suggested you buy from the bakery shop because they are more professional in cooking with cheaper price, and they just 50 metres away from us. Sorry for the troubles. Hope you had a great time in Bay Of Islands.
